A classic «Maranathon» pilgrimage:

«Maranathons» pilgrimages are precious times of prayer and fasting for the healing of the human heart and the healing of the world.

During the «Maranathons», pilgrimages, the morning of the 5th of the month is spent on the hill of apparitions and the morning of the 6th of the month on the hill of Krizevac, hill of the cross.

The rest of the program is adapted according to these two days and includes the elements indicated in the program proposed below, for information only.

Remark: the 5th and 6th of the month are “prayer and fasting” days in all the Maranathons of the world and therefore the lunch, as Our Lady asks in Medjugorje, is on bread and water. And if it is not a Wednesday or Friday, a normal meal is served in the evening.

From Saturday 18th to Saturday 25th April 2020

The beauty of popular piety

Meeting with contemporary witnesses / mystics

Who is this for ?

For everyone, like all Maranatha Conversion pilgrimages, but perhaps especially, for those who:

  • sont attirés par le surnaturel;
  • seek to enter the mystery of the Invisible;
  • do not hesitate to pray novenas, to make pilgrimages;
  • are not ashamed to have a child’s faith …

“The Holy Council commits at the same time all the sons of the Church to make a great deal of the practices and exercises of piety towards her, which the Magisterium has recommended over the centuries /…/ May the faithful remember that a true devotion does not consist in a sterile and ephemeral movement of sensibility, any more than in vain credulity, true devotion proceeds from the true faith, which leads us to recognize the eminent dignity of the Mother of God, and impels us to to love this Mother with a filial love, and to pursue the imitation of Her virtues “. (Vatican II, Lumen Gentium § 67)

Lord, give me the intelligence to love,
and love to understand!

Speaker: Jacques Gautier

Our main speaker Jacques Gauthier will explain the importance of these devotions and the importance of the synergy between “intelligence of faith” and “expression of faith.” We will try to have contemporary witnesses / mystics (the Medjugorje visionaries) to explain us what they are experiencing, the beauty of their experience, but also the pain of not always being understood by their loved ones, or by some members of the Church who are uncertain about the reality of their lives, their experiences.

He authored numerous books, many of them on inner prayer and mystical christians, including a biography of Georgette Faniel, the mystic of Quebec who was in close contact with the Franciscans and the visionaries of Medjugorje.

He is also an expert on Thérèse de Lisieux and his books have been translated into several languages. He dedicates his life to retreats and conferences in French-speaking Canada and in Francee.

1st International Congress “Our Lady of Guadalupe – Medjugorje”»

From Saturday 9th to Saturday 16th May 2020

In 1531 the event “Our Lady of Guadalupe” disrupted the history of the New World at a time when indigenous peoples thought the end of the world had arrived. The Virgin Mary appeared to the humble Indian, St. Juan Diego, and miraculously imprinted Her image on the visionary’s coat. The cactus fiber, of which his cloak – called a Tilma – was made, should already have been dissolved for five centuries, but the coat is still there, its bright colors as if it had just been given to us, its mysteries still inexplicable. This mantle is not only a miracle in itself, but the image of the Virgin Mary imprinted on it makes all of us, witnesses to His presence throughout centuries.

Millions of us believe that the Virgin Mary has been appearing in Medjugorje since the end of 1981. Whether in Lourdes, Fatima or Medjugorje, we must believe the visionaries, we have no proof that what they tell us is the truth. By miraculously imprinting Her image on the mantle – the Tilma – of St Juan Diego in Mexico City on December 12, 1531, the Virgin Mary made us all become “visionaries”…

Motivated believers felt incited to propose a first International “Our Lady of Guadalupe” Congress, which will take place in Medjugorje from Saturday 9 to Saturday, May 16, 2020. We will have the privilege to hear the teachings by Bishop Eduardo Chavez, undisputed world specialist on the miracle of the Tilma of Guadalupe. He will be accompanied by many other specialists and important witnesses.

Our Lady of Guadalupe is the Empress of the Americas and the Philippines. She was also declared the Star of the New Evangelization by St. John Paul II.

Her soft and pretty, mixed-race face invites us, over time, to join Her prayer for the world. How many of us will join Her?

Who is this event for?

For everyone, as is the case with all “Maranatha Conversion” meetings, but perhaps especially for those who:

  • Love “Our Lady of Guadalupe” and want to deepen this devotion;
  • Have heard about “Our Lady of Guadalupe” the “Mexican Virgin” but realize that in fact they do not know Her, nor Her message of December 1531 given for the whole world, throughout time and space, to the humble Indian St Juan Diego;
  • Know Medjugorje or want to discover Medjugorje, but wish to live it in a unique setting;
  • Are attracted by the supernatural, seek to enter the mystery of the Invisible, understand that God wishes to communicate with us;
  • Do not hesitate to get going, to meet others, to deepen their faith;
  • Love to meet people from different countries, are open to others, like to interact with the world, not only in order to find comfort, but also because they know that positive changes in the world cannot happen without us;
  • Are not ashamed of their child’s faith, or would like to find a child’s faith … Pope Francis affectionately mentions “popular piety” when speaking about the people who fill our places of pilgrimage and our churches.

Speakers:

  • Specialists and theologians who will explain to us the message and the importance of Our Lady of Guadalupe and also of Our Lady in Medjugorje;
  • Witnesses who will share with us how their lives have changed, how they were turned upside down when they encountered the Love of God, encounters made possible through the intercession of the Virgin Mary.

Whoever you are, if the theme “Prayer for the healing of humanity, prayer for the healing of mankind’s heart” is enticing to you, come join us!

Join us for moments of intense prayer – and also of fasting – for the healing of humanity and of mankind’s heart.
There will be time for exchanges between men and women of different religious backgrounds, who are committed to peace. They will tell us how they are striving for it, how we could reach them in their efforts, and perhaps help them.
Come and discover the major spiritual destinations of Bosnia and Herzegovina : Medjugorje, Sarajevo,  Mostar…

If, together, we all hit the road,
If we refuse to admit defeat from the outset,
If we decide that from now on,
we will partner with Heaven for a better world,
Everything will become possible.

Nothing is impossible to God and He listens to our prayers.
If we are many, if our hearts are united in the same process of Prayer and of fasting,
for the sake of peace, for the healing of humanity and of mankind’s heart,

If we humbly put our lives in the hands of the Lord,
We can be certain that God will hear us,
That he will fulfill our prayers…
